Fantastic Four take Mayo by storm
by Geo  7 Aug 2011 A comment for an uncommented mountain.
Liz50, Muschi, Sandman and myself took ourselves across the country to do the Glendahurk Horseshoe. It rained as we crossed the midlands and got West of the Shannon, but cleared as we donned the boots in the little car park at L9106197962. I was very impressed with the signage for the local looped walks and the large OS based map in the car park. We head up the ridge walking North (doing the horseshoe clockwise). Only saw one car on our way but for the entire walk not another sinner, in fact finding another footprint was difficult, such was the beautiful emptiness of this fantastic big sky country. Clouds threatened from the Atlantic, and from time to time rain was seen over Achill, the Reek and the bog land north of us, but our ridge just kept on rising and the mist rose with it.
Lunch was had on Corranbinnia after a very cautious crossing of the arete from Corranbinnia SW, and had smashing views of Slieve Carr, bringing back recollections of an arduous walk last August when that dragon was slain!
A careful descent to the little top between Corranbinnia and Bengorm NW, before continuing south to the summit of Bengorm NW itself. We had a bit of craic with agreeing to disagree over the particular rock which was the apex, my own GPS reading being F9198402478, which wasn't allowed by MV as it was too far from the co-ordinates given(Simon please take note!).
Finally we did the last thigh wrenching drag up Bengorm and had a quick snack on a midge infested summit, before our return to the track 400m North of the car park, traversing a bog, which thankfully was quite dry.
As we removed the boots a shower fell, but I have to say, we were blessed with a brilliant day, for what is definitely one of Ireland's top ridge walks, up there with the best of them. a shade under 15km and with nearly 1100m climbing but well, well worth it.

A little gem
by Colin Murphy  28 May 2012 Overshadowed by its bigger brother, but a small gem in its own right, Bengorm NW is steeply sided with a rocky summit, marked by several boulders. It is difficult to be precise about the highest point, but it is likely to be found towards the SE end of the summit area, marked by a large boulder.
